Jack Burch,Signal Man,WW2 Navy or Merchant Marines
My friend,Sandi, is looking for her birth father,JACK BURCH(Burtch? Berch? Not sure of spelling). He was a SIGNAL MANon the ships in WW2, maybe stationed in Cornwall, Ontario.Was a Navy guy or possibly Merchant Marines. Supposedly was not Canadian born.Jack Burch and Isabella Reekie (known as Isa,or Red,because of her red hair) met in about 1944, in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia.They continued dating when Isabella was recruited to work in a plant in Cornwall,Ontario.When Isabella found herself pregnant, she returned to Nova Scotia.Jack went out to sea.When he returned from sea in August 1945,Isabella decided not to continue the relationship.Christine Sandra Reekie was born on Oct 26th 1945, in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia.She was known as Sandra White as a young girl.(Her mother married George White, who has since passed on).Jack supposedly made an attempt to meet Sandi,in Toronto, when she was getting married at the age of 18,in 1963. Unfortunately, they did not meet, as Sandi had already left for Nova Scotia with her new husband.
Jack Burch was last known to be living near Toronto, Ontario, in 1963.Sandi was told he has a couple of daughters.
